OG Fellows

Internship Program

Stacey Abrams is running to be governor of One Georgia. That means more money in families' pockets, helping our communities prosper and giving our children the greatest opportunities to thrive. OG hires motivated, principled candidates who want this not just for Democrats but for every Georgian.

In order to help us to victory, OG is hiring a cohort of diverse, driven professionals seeking to contribute their gifts in this critical moment across all of our departments, including: Scheduling, Data, Political & Advance, Communications, Digital, HR, Operations, Finance, Field and more. We encourage applications from candidates from all backgrounds and work hard to create an environment where everyone on our team feels included, involved in key decisions that affect them and supported in bringing their full selves to work.

What Is The OG Fellows Program?

OG Fellows is a paid-internship program for people interested in deepening their knowledge and engagement with politics, gaining entry into a career in campaigns, and applying their growing skillset to ensure Stacey Abrams is elected as the next governor of the state of Georgia.

Structure of the Fellowship Program

The structure of the fellowship varies by department and need. Fellowships can be seasonal (i.e., Summer) or long-term positions with the Campaign. If you are in an academic program and are chosen as a Fellow, OG will work with you to fulfill any academic requirements your school might have in order for you to receive credit for your internship.

What differentiates a Fellowship from a regular, permanent position with the campaign is that fellowships are part time and are intentionally structured to attract talent at the entry level who may be just getting their start in politics/campaigns. There is often additional flexibility in terms of scheduling for fellows, who may be juggling academic, familial or other obligations. Fellows receive support from their supervisors and other campaign staff who are committed to their growth and development in the work. This support comes in the form of weekly check-ins, fellows-only trainings and social outings, and a team mentor

Pay: $20/hour
